The talented young dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More

Incredible night at the theatre. I'd seen this actor before, on PBS and on stage, so knew it'd be wonderful...but what a treat. Ian Ruskin commands the stage as Aussie union leader Harry Bridges. I learned a lot about the reasons unions were formed...and even more...how to live true to your beliefs and not let government bureaucrats, business owners and others block your dreams of equality and democracy....funny it took an immigrant Aussie to do this. Great active Q&A after, and loved the opening night reception with food from whole foods and wine! Going again to enjoy the Paine opening night tonight!
My friends and I also love going to Abbott Kinney just a block away- named the coolest street in the US by GQ!

See Goldstar member reviews of the play’s run at its previous location.
“Unmistakable topicality and human interest infuses From Wharf Rats to Lord of the Docks … undeniably apropos for the corporatist-beleaguered present.” -Los Angeles Times
“Not only do we see this master stage craftsman in a sterling performance, we also are informed of an important and rarely broached part of America’s sordid labor history. For anyone who works for a living, or is dependent on workers to live (and that’s all of us), From Wharf Rats to Lord of the Docks is a must-see show.” -showmag.com
“Ruskin’s hour-long play is a gentle reminder of who this man was and how valuable he was to the global growth of protections for longshoremen, warehousemen, and merchant-marine sailors.” —Stagehappenings.com
